NEW STEAMER. - The steamer OLIVE BRANCH, which has been constructed here during the past winter, left yesterday to take her place on the route between Toledo, Perrysburg and Maumee. Her length is 86 feet, breadth 18 feet, and capacity 72 tons. Her engine, of 60 horse power, was constructed by J.B. Wilson, and her boiler by J. & J. Brennam. She is owned by J.W. Williams and Capt. E.F. Hall, the latter of whom will command her. She made a trial trip on Friday, and another yesterday, and it was found that her engine and everything about her worked in an admirable manner. - Detroit Advertiser.
